PIA Press Release

Panabo to stage bangus-grill

by Jean Duron-Abangan

Davao City (16 March) -- Panabo City will stage a 200-meter long grilling of Bangus in this year's Bangus Festival held as one of the grand activities during the week-long celebration of Araw ng Panabo this month.

Speaking before a press conference, Panabo City Administrator Nemesio Rasgo expected the event to be much festive than before as more visitors have been invited to come and join.

The parade of grilled bangus will be staged on March 30 along the coastal area of barangay Cagangohan where the Panabo City Mariculture Park Development project is located.

Rasgo said the park developed since three years ago, is now substantially producing volumes of bangus which, he said, is competitive in taste and quality with those produced in Pangasinan.

Launched on March 30 2006, the Panabo City Mariculture Park has been developed through the partnership of the Department of Agriculture-Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (DA-BFAR), local governments of Panabo City and Davao del Norte, local fisherfolks council, and private investors in cooperation with government financial institutions particularly Land Bank of the Philippines (LBP) and Development Bank of the Philippines (DBP).

Panabo City Mariculture Park stretches in a 1,075-hectare area where 60 hectares have been allotted for marine fish cages and 20 hectares, for seaweed production.

Rasgo said the city government of Panabo is getting into massive promotion of the park to widen the market of its produce.

Other than holding a Bangus Festival, the city government through its city tourism office, is offering an "open tour" to the mariculture park where visitors get to watch how bangus is being raised.

"You would love the bangus jumping out off the water when fed," said Rasgo.

The mariculture park tour is open during the entire period of holding the Araw ng Panabo celebration from March 22 until March 31. (PIA XI) [top]
